The link between social media and crashes

On Behalf of | Jan 5, 2018 | Car accidents

In recent years, an incredible number of people have started using social media on a daily basis. From following other accounts to uploading videos and pictures of their own, there has been a significant amount of activity on various digital platforms. Unfortunately, there are some potential downsides that come with this rapid advancement of social media, such as an increased risk of distracted driving. Our law office knows how challenging life often is for distracted driving crash victims and we believe they need a voice.

Some irresponsible drivers engage with social media in different ways while behind the wheel, whether they are posting text or capturing video that they are live streaming to an audience. Moreover, drivers may take their eyes away from the road to watch someone else’s live stream or view content that has been shared by someone else. People may also receive messages on social networking platforms and cause an accident while they are trying to read or respond to such messages.

Sadly, distracted driving accidents which involved social media and resulted in the loss of life have been caught on tape, which is particularly upsetting. It is critical for drivers to keep these distractions away from them when they are behind the wheel and for the victims of these collisions to know their legal rights.

Our car crashes section will give you access to even more material which is related to auto accident injuries and other topics that victims may have to take a closer look at.
